A Midwife’s Role in Pelvic Floor Health Lecture Pack

Midwives are often the most important advocate for a woman as she enters motherhood.

Being knowledgeable in the area of pelvic health and wellness enables midwives to expand their role in supporting women.

The pelvic floor is responsible for bowel, bladder and sexual function. It is also part of our central stability system and plays a critical role in stability during movement. This entire system is significantly impacted during pregnancy.

In a recent study of pregnant women, researchers found that 62% have incontinence during pregnancy and 50% continued to have problems with involuntary leaking urine after childbirth. Another study showed that 75% of women will experience pelvic organ prolapse and 50-70% will experience back pain during pregnancy.

Working together midwives and physical therapists can promote a standard of care and practice where changes in the body during pregnancy and after birth are addressed through education, treatment, and self-help tools to empower women to feel their best into their journey to motherhood.

  • 1. To understand the functions of the pelvic floor.

  • 2. To understand how the deep core system works.

  • 3. To understand the midwives role in pelvic floor and deep core wellness.

Abstract:

The pelvic floor is a fascinating structure that is responsible for so many basic but critical functions essential to our survival. This group of muscles is directly impacted during pregnancy, birth and in the postpartum healing period.
Midwives are amazing advocates for women. In my practice, it has become obvious that midwives that are knowledgeable in pelvic health and wellness play a critical role in recognizing when this system is not functioning optimally and are then able to advocate and provide support to their clients that go far beyond the birthing process.
In this presentation, I will present information about the pelvic floor that will give midwives a deeper understanding of pelvic floor functions and how it is intimately related to the core system in our body. This will give midwives the knowledge to support their clients and advocate for them in the most holistic way of facilitating women to have easier pregnancies and births and the most efficient postpartum healing.

Abstract:

Pregnancy is one of the most magnificent things that a woman can experience. The ability of our bodies to accommodate and nurture a growing baby inside the womb is fascinating and beautiful, however, it does cause significant changes in our body that can cause moms to experience aches, pains and leaks.
A Pelvic health physical therapist can help moms enjoy pregnancy by helping them stay fit, healthy, and pain free as their body, hormones, and posture changes throughout pregnancy.
Maintaining musculoskeletal, postural, and pelvic balance will allow moms to stay comfortable and supported during pregnancy and facilitate the quickest and most efficient recovery post partum. A midwife can be instrumental in encouraging their clients to maintain pelvic health and wellness throughout pregnancy.

  • 1. To understand common birth patterns that should be assessed and addressed postpartum

  • 2. The importance of restoring balance to the components of the deep core system for optimal postpartum healing
    3. To understand why safe and guided return to physical activity is so important in the postpartum period

Abstract:

The third trimester is an exciting time for moms. There is much attention placed on her with the excitement and preparation of an upcoming birth.
In the fourth trimester, the 12 weeks that follow birth, we often see this attention transition to focus on the newborns' needs by healthcare practitioners, family, friends, and of course by the mom.
It is important to recognize that this is a critical time for mothers. They are struggling with sleeplessness, adapting emotionally and are in the active recovery phase of healing physically.
In France, Sweden and other parts of the world, the healthcare system pays much closer attention to mom’s well being after birth. In many of these countries being assessed and treated by a pelvic health physical therapist is the standard of care. The American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology (ACOG) recently came out with recommendations for improved focus on maternal health. This includes emotional well-being, health maintenance, sexuality, and physical therapy as the standard of care and practice.
We are still behind many other countries in maternal postpartum care but we are slowly making improvements. Midwives have the important opportunity to spread the awareness that every mom should get the postpartum care they deserve.
